Giants beat Diamondbacks 4-1 to win first road series | Sports
The right-hander pitched well in an emergency start against Colorado on Monday, allowing an earned run on two hits in four innings.
Clarke had limited opposing hitters to 1 for 18 this season on his changeup, but he left one up in the first inning and Dickerson hit it out for a long solo home run.
Clarke settled into a rhythm after that, limiting the Giants to one hit and two baserunners before being replaced by Kevin Ginkel in the sixth inning. Clarke matched a career high with seven strikeouts.
